Prawn & chorizo orzo With vine tomatoes & fresh basil

The Orzo was replaced by macaroni. Just because the Orzo was not in stock at our grocers.  I am a massive chorizo fan. Ask my colleagues, I cann’t get enough of it. I just love the strong flavour. It can take over a whole dish, so it’s always a big risk to keep the flavour…

Coconut Flour Banana Cake with Chocolate Rum Ganache

We couldn’t resist to put shaved coconut on top. Just for a bit of coloring. As we have many (cheeky) monkeys in the BUX office, we run out of banana’s so we had to leave them out of this recipe. We can imagine the cake taste ever nicer with the banana’s, but without it was…

Indian chopped salad

It might be a bit boring when you look at this salad, but the dressing makes this dish. The mango chutney with the seeds are yummy. The recipe below will ask you to chop all the ingredients fine. I did like this salad a bit chuncky next to the fishcakes. Ingredients (serves 6-8) 1 small…
